A small town multiplex is turned upside down when a famous Hollywood director, Simona Wakefield, is rumored to be sneaking into a special screening of her new film. The workers of Cinema 14 divide up in two opposing factions: the first led by Rocky, an aspiring young filmmaker who wants to impress Wakefield and get a recommendation to film school. The other led by Wade, an anarchist, wheelchair bound ticket-taker who wants to 'smash the machinery of storytelling' and sabotage the sneak preview. Everyone in the theater is on the lookout for Ms. Wakefield; finding her, however, proves to be a harder task than anyone realizes. Written by Zachary Dehm

Did You Know?


The film playing in the theater near the end of the film is 'The Longest Yard.' The film ran with the sound off, and the cast and crew were only allotted the length of the film to complete the long scene. The darker shots are that way because they were shot during the end credits. See more »


When Summer and Wade ride into the storage room to scheme, the establishing shot had to be reversed, meaning all text is a mirror image and name tags are on opposite sides of the shirt. See more »

A Hilarious, Wild Ride. -- It's Outstanding!
11 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Anyone who has been to the local cinema as of late, having made the tragic mistake of wasting some thirty-plus dollars on another mindless comedy, would do well to repent, and save a life, by tracking down the manifest play, turned film, "Luke's Father and The Sled" penned by Danial Barden and directed by Zacahry Dehm.

As an avid film-goer, I can tell you I've seen a number of tired comedies trying to squeeze laughs out new, "unexplored" genres (i.e. kids in bio-domes, kids becoming their dogs, etc.) but not once have I seen a genuinely entertaining film that got it right, taking us somewhere new and different we actually wanted to go. "Luke's Father" is that bold, new film.

Following the exploits of a group of over-worked, militant theatre workers (...just typing those words makes me laugh), "Luke's Father and The Sled" is a wild romp of film-lover angst, turned capitalist revolt, with a healthy dose of Palahnuikian guerrilla mischief. Filmed entirely on-location inside a real movie theatre, during actual business hours (or, so it seemed) this goes to tremendous lengths to craft its laughs, and succeeds on all fronts.

"Luke's Father and The Sled" is an original, laugh-out-loud comedy for any cinephile who knows quality when it sees it. Find this film. Buy it! Rent it! Sell your grandma to get it! -- But, by all means, Watch it! - It's just fabulous.
